    The article presents analysis of reasons for food dislikes among Slovenian primary schoolchildren aged 10 to 15, by gender, age and permanent residence. Altogether 628 primary school children from 16 randomly chosen schools in Slovenia filled the questionnaire. We found out that the most influen- tial origins of food dislikes among schoolchildren were sensory characteristics, especially taste and smell. Among environmen- tal factors were the most influential eating habits in families. Girls were more particular about their food then boys, except when it comes to vegetables. The study revealed that older schoolchildren disliked more organ meat than their younger colleagues. differences among schoolchildren from western and eastern Slovenia were significant in dislikes toward meat from molluscs and amphibians. Schoolchildren from western Slovenia were less rejectable toward this kind of food.
